ABS, DSME sign agreement on decarbonisation
American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) and Korea’s Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) have formed a joint development project to create a decarbonisation strategy for the latter’s LNG carrier designs, ABS said on September 30.
Signed at Gastech, the project will see ABS and DSME investigate carbon emission performance of ships in various segments. Specialists from ABS’ simulation center in Singapore will then simulate the performance of a range of decarbonisation technologies. The outcomes of the project will allow DSME to compare and select the best decarbonisation options for each specific ship segment, ABS said.
ABS and DSME last week agreed to jointly develop designs for a 70,000 m3 very large, liquefied CO2 carrier.
